Ike Charlton

Isaiah (Ike) Charlton is one of Dr. Phillips High School's most accomplished football players.  At DP, Ike played quarterback, wide receiver and defensive back and was one of the most electrifying players in the state, earning All-Metro Conference honors as a sophomore and junior and All-Central Florida honors as a senior.

After graduating in 1996 as one of the top players in Florida, Ike Charlton signed a scholarship to play at Virginia Tech where, as a senior, was named first team All-American with 51 tackles, three fumble recoveries and eight career interceptions.  He also was a member of Virginia Tech's track and field team, placing fifth in the 55m dash at the 1997 Atlantic 10 Championships. Charlton capped his stellar career playing in the 1999 Sugar Bowl against eventual national champion Florida State.

Charlton was drafted in the NFL by the Seattle Seahawks in the third round and played for the Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders. In 2005, he signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League where he was one of the team's top defensive players and one of the league's most ferocious hitters. Ike retired as a player in 2010 and since 2014, he has been the defensive backs coach for the CFL's Ottawa Redblacks.

Ike Charlton was inducted into the Dr. Phillips Hall of Fame in 2001.
